My requirement is :: User enters details into form guide and form guide will be submitted for subsequent approvals. Once all the approvals done, I need to archive all the entered data into pdf and store that into contentspace.
As mentioned in help at :: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/livecycle/9.0/workbenchHelp/help.html?topic=000731&topic=000730, Createing Form guides using LC workbench ES2 -> Including the pdf document with form guide,
I created pdf templates for each form guide ( for 6 now but i have 60 form guides to create) . I am rendering the each form guide and getting the xml and putting the xml data on the created pdf templates by using some activities.
Do we need to have one pdf for each form guide to archive the data ?.
Is there any activity to convert the form guide to pdf directly ?.
Please let me know solulation for this req. It reduces much of my work.
The PDF is really independent from the Guide. The only thing the PDF cares about is the data you're going to merge with it.
If all your Guides use a similar data structure, there's no reason why you can't use the same PDF. If the data is very different, then it'll be hard to represent the data from all the Guides in one PDF.
Are you using LiveCycle ES 8.2.x or ES2?
Thanks for your reply.
The data is very much variant from each pdf.
FYI I am using ES2.
